Default Tips on Removing Sticky Contacts

I'd like to ask people reading this site if they have any tips and tricks to share when it comes to removing a sticky daily contact lens at bed time. What is your favorite technique? Solution? Eye drops? Do you have a favorite brand of contacts that never sticks?

Please sign in and share your wisdom. Thank you.

Sticky is never a good description, if that is trully what's happening then it would be best addressed by seeing your eye care professional to either have new lenses refit into a more suitable material or you may consider applying drops throughout the day if your doctor is satisfied with the fit of this lens and material.

It is far easier to deal with the situation throughout the day then to try and hydrate the lenses at night to remove them, so using drops is a great solution. I don't recommend solutions directly in the eye unless it is a saline solution with no cleaners in it. Although the multi purpose solutions could easily be used in the eye it is not recommended as the cleaners even though diluted are not to be applied to the eye directly.

One important thing in the saga of contact lens is that you require to remove your contact lens correctly to minimize the chances of damaging your contact lenses or your eyes. You should better take your own time. Do not do anything related to your contact lenses in a hurry. Before you begin to take out your contact lenses, be it colored contact lenses, disposable contact lenses, cosmetic contact lenses or hard contact lense, you need to make sure that your hands are clean and dry to not suffer from contact lenses dry eyes.

Are these special instructions for sticky contact lenses, or are they just general tips for removing contact lenses, sticky or not?

Why would contact lenses be sticky? Could that be a sign of a serious medical condition?
